What are the advantages of private In Situ domestic staff training?

There are several advantages to having a trainer come to your home, mansion, yacht, or jet for on-site training of your domestic help. The biggest advantage is that your staff will be learning in the same environment they work in. This tailors the details to their specific environment. And it helps them to retain all of their new skills. Candidates will be working with their own silver service. As well as with their own hoovers, their own service wear. And all in their own kitchen and dining room. They are in their own facilities.

When in their actual place of work, domestic helpers can be much more relaxed. This allows them to focus more on learning and retaining. Being comfortable allows candidates to ask questions. Which, in other settings, they may be shy or embarrassed to ask. It’s more common for candidates to ask questions in on site training sessions. And this deeper engagement translates to a better learning experience. It also increases confidence in their new skills.

When domestic staff training is conducted in situ, trainers build and nourish the skills of candidates. As they can now apply the training to concrete, specific situations. Staff can learn exactly how to apply their new skills to their daily routine. And also to the preferences of their principal.

A comfortable and familiar training environment is essential. And allowing a candidate to learn with their own tools. As well as to ask questions specific to their place of work. This makes for the most beneficial use of everyone’s time.
